Uniqlo presented their new range of fall and winter clothing the other day. Sure, we don’t really have “winter” but that has never stopped us filipinos from wearing darker color palettes and thicker clothing come the ‘ber months not to mention being up to date on the latest styles.

Not to be outdone, Parokya ni Edgar’s Chito Miranda showed us his modeling prowess as well while donning an ULD (ultra light down) jacket.
Complete with backshot! Some may think that this jacket looks overly warm and heavy but is practically weightless when worn, and may be more suitable for our warmer climates.
Chito initiated this boxing match style pose which amused the audience and press people.
Uniqlo Philippines’ COO Katsumi Kubota explaining the new product range’s colors, style, and plans for expansion.
Looks like a pretty serious fellow, but his speech was funny as it was informative. He kept it light as this was an afternoon event. I also expressed my excitement for the UNDERCOVER for Uniqlo line coming here when he was introduced to me.
Bianca Roque hosted the show skillfully, and seemed to impart a Japanese vibe that day.
Some snacks were prepared which I didn’t touch (honest!) I did however partake in the pandan and lemongrass iced tea which was really refreshing.
Larger knits which I’m a fan of, as they exude a sort of outdoor appeal (even if you’re just stuck in an office with overly aggressive airconditioning)
I liked how the displays showed the “raw” materials, lending to the quality feel of the range.
Merino wool and knits to layer or to even wear alone.
Last and certainly not the least, the UNDERCOVER for Uniqlo line. Only a few shirts were on display but there are jackets, shirts, and other accessories from the Jun Takahashi collaboration with the brand in store already. I was pretty excited for this collection coming to our shores as they are pretty hard to get anywhere, with jackets popping up on online auction sites at inflated prices.
Uniqlo is at the 2nd level of Mall of Asia.
